Donal Logue Rumored To Be GOTHAM’s Detective Gordon; Actor Immediately Responds
It seems DC and Fox are trying to give Marvel a run for their money this week as we keep hearing more and more about the planned Gotham series. There’s been a few stories about Fox‘s Batman prequel show and how some of the Caped Crusader‘s most notorious roles will appear on the show, but now we get a rumor about who could be playing Jim Gordon. I mean it is a show focusing on a younger Jim Gordon, it’s about time he got the spotlight again. This rumor is unique because the actor mentioned immediately responded to the news.
Latino-Review got a slap on the hand earlier today with the whole Johnny Depp/Dr. Strange brouhaha, but now they’re saying they’ve gotten their hands on a TV scoop. The site claims that Donal Logue has been offered the part of Detective James Gordon for the Gotham series.You may know Logue as ‘Oh! You mean THAT guy!” from his appearances in movies like Blade or TV shows like Grounded For Life, Sons of Anarchy and BBC America‘s Copper. Logue would be an interesting choice. Some may think he’d be a better Bullock, but he’s a great actor and could definitely pull off Gordon. Some just thought Fox may be going younger with their Jim Gordon. In fact, Logue thought they were too. The actor took to Twitter:
@nerdbastards not true! I wish-would be awesome (but who could top Gary Oldman?) From what I heard, Gotham catches Gordon in his late 20′s

While there is a false denial game, it seems likely that Logue may know something about the show but it could be because he’s in talks for a different role. We’ve been hearing a lot about Gotham lately, so we could get an official casting announcement before long. What do you think about Logue being Gordon though? Could you see him as the one good cop in the corrupt city of Gotham?
